Our economy short blocks are just the ticket for that budget build! This economy short block is a direct replacement for 1993-1995 SVT Lightning 351W applications. Our remanufactured short blocks start as good cores that are dissassembled, then placed in state-of-the-art, environmentally safe burners, followed by steel shot blasting to clean. The blocks are magnifluxed, inspected for cracks, bored and precision honed to manufacturer's specifications. They are then fitted with new, .040"-.060" over cast aluminum pistons and cast rings*. 28-oz. cranks are precision ground to recommended specifications, and micro-polished. Short blocks do not include cam or timing chain. Each economy remanufactured shortblock includes a 90-day, 4,000 mile limited warranty**.
The cylinder bores are machined the minimum amount to bring them in to spec, between .040" & .060". All bores will be the same size. If a cylinder cannot be bored back to true, then a sleeve will be installed so that the block can still be serviceable.
